to be nato commander until the disclosure that he is under investigation by the pentagon. jill kelley, a socialite in tampa and general allen allegedly exchanged e-mails and documents that were called inappropriate. allen insisted there was no affair. kelley's complaints that she was getting harassing e-mails led the fbi to paula broadwell and the affair between broadwell and general david petraeus. unlike petraeus who has admitted infidelity and resign as director of the cia, allen got a vote of confidence today from president obama. >> he has faith in general allen. he believes he is doing and has done an excellent job. >> reporter: the petraeus scandal has washington stunned. some are angry that the afghan war costing so many u.s. lives and dollars was hardly mentioned until this. >> now we've become obsessed with the sex life of the cia director and then the commander. it seem out of balance. >> reporter: some question the fbi's involvement. >> harassment letters between two women or any two people, involving a love triangle or whatever it was, should not rise to this level. >> re
dozen or body heat or the year of living dangerously or the love pentagon or how paula got her groove back. something. we'll figure it out. but you get steve buscemi to play general petraeus. he's got the look and this way of giving you a deep inner sliminess. the paula broadwell role is so juicy. you know who has to win, angie jolie. the sex appeal, the toughness. can't you see the scenes of her and the general running through the mountains of afghanistan during which they find a cave and do some cardio. back at home we see the wife, holly petraeus, played by kathy bates. we get bruce willis to play general allen because his entrance makes the story even more bizarre. and to play jill kelley, the hot wife who unnerved the tough broadwell and made an fbi agent go mad and called the fbi launching the whole investigation i would would point back to her, we get, yep, kim kardashian. so what if she can't act. no one can resist her. a general is sending her thousands of e-mails, the sfib sending her shirtless photos, and who will play him, that fbi agent? that's a no-brainer. the situation
's start with what kyra was saying, barbara starr, who is at the pentagon. she didn't know him ever to be flirtatious and said a number of his friends were describing paula broadwell as someone who is agreesive and works her magic as she ensnares men with her mayingness, i guess, all around. so i'm not really surprised that the general's friends would be spinning it this way. what insight can you give us on this? >> let me cut to the chase. kyra is absolutely right. two people involved, to say the least. when we know, soledad, is that general petraeus in the last several days has authorized personal personally several of his former aides to talk to the news media, including me. i have spoken to steve boylan, his former spokesman in iraq. steve tells me general petraeus authorized him to speak to the news media. first, let's be terribly clear. general petraeus still putting out his words, his version of events through many of his former military aides. as for miss broadwell, she will have to speak her piece when she chooses to. you know, i think that it's also worth absolutely noting
with you frequently. want to bring in our pentagon correspondent, barbara starr, right now. she's getting new information about a possible ground war. barbara, what are you picking up? >> reporter: wolf, i'm standing outside the israeli embassy, just come from a closed-door briefing. ambassador michael oren, the israeli ambassador to the united states, says all of the pan planning is done now for any possible ground action. they are ready to go in israel. the israeli armed forces, the u.s. has been briefed about it. if it comes to it, they are now done with the planning and completely ready to go. but ambassador oren does very importantly go on to say, and i quote, we would like to avoid ground action. oren saying they still want to get some sort of solution to all of this, get hamas to agree to stop firing those rockets. if it doesn't happen, though, they are ready to go now, wolf. >> barbara, where do the israelis think the weapons are coming from, the weapons in gaza, the rockets, the missiles? >> reporter: well, this is a very important question, of course, because now hamas is firing
on the hill at the pentagon with the department of labor, side-by-side with representatives and a presidential task forces and in board rooms across the country and it is bearing results. the work for licensure and certification -- the legislation before the higher veterans act and the veterans goals for jobs act for 2012. we are grateful for this dedication and cooperation that congress has shown us on this issue. clearly, you have heard the concerns of the veterans and we appreciate everything you have done to improve the situation on the federal level. but we cannot let up. as the american legion works to capitalize on these gains and increase our efforts, we need to support to keep working with the states to improve their acceptance of military training and as the federal government has already done. legislation like the hire at home act to recognize military training, education, and experience. the american legion is now working with groups such as the american national standards institute, solutions for information design, to advise u.s. army training -- to evaluate the programs being pr
to war with each other. the state department, the pentagon and the cia and the question who is responsible for what happened that night in libya for preventing and failing to prevent what happened. and the report is that general petraeus wanted to get out there aggressively in defense of the cia and ultimately did by release that time line and the intel officials were not too happy with petraeus and the suggestion is suddenly when they became unhappy about what he started to do on libya to defend the cia, suddenly his affair was a deal breaker. suddenly that went up to the upper etch lons and clapper told him he needed to resign and petraeus wanted to keep his job but did what his boss told him to do which was resign. does that make sense to you? is that feasible? >> you are not the on person saying it. megyn: i'm not saying it at all. the "wall street journal" is saying it. >> charles krauthammer made a similar statement. maybe the thing that was being held as the sword of damocles was the preknowledge of this. i don't know. that's all speculation. here is the point i was t
in this room remembers where you work. i was on the steps of the pentagon. i literally walked out of the building and was there for a meeting and i remember hearing on that gorgeous day an eerie sound. it was like a plane took a wrong turn but i did not know it was a plane. because planes go up and down the potomac regularly. the next thing i knew, i was on the bottom of the stairs and i'm thinking how they get from the top to the bottom of the stairs? the plane had hit the building. i did not know where i was sitting at that point and time that two other planes had hit the world trade center. because, if you remember, in a lot of our jobs, we have cnn or span = = or cspan but i did not have it on. by first reaction was i just ran my pantyhose and i have to brief a general. this is not a good sign. my second reaction was there is a lot of smoke coming out of that building. one of the privileges i had is parking. very few get parking at the pentagon. the reality is i ran to my car, got people out of that building up from the point on, our world and the united states and around the
refer you to the pentagon for the process under way with regards to general allen. >> meantime, soledad, president obama will welcome dozens of business leaders to the white house today. some of whom support something he wants to do, which is increase taxes on the wealthy. obviously the white house is hoping that maybe that will convince some house republicans to budge on this a little bit. although i've talked to some republicans who say, don't count on that. soledad? >> all right. brianna keilar for us this morning. thanks, brianna. cnn's special coverage of the president's news conference will begin at 1:00 p.m. eastern time. wolf blitzer is hosting that, and we will obviously carry that for you live when it happens. want to talk a little bit more about the fiscal cliff. chief business correspondent ali velshi joins us. you heard brianna talk about this meeting with ceos about that. how much of that is pr and how much of that is really critical conversation? >> well, the very conservative leaders, and anti-tax leaders, have called the whole thing pr. they think it's giving the presid
a moment ago while reporting from our barbara starr at the pentagon that we're expecting that the, the, the retired general is going to testify that immediately there was the sense there was this radical islamist group that was responsibility but at the same time a stream of intelligence that might have suggested that there was this anti-islamic video that was playing a role in some way. what, what do you make -- that's what he ends up testifying, what do you make of, of, of that? >> well, you know, i think, soledad, that the american people really want to get to the bottom of this and get some answers. i think a lot of people are frustrated that we hear one story one day and another story another day. and i think, by the way, this isn't just republicans, this is republicans, democrats, independents, all across the country, saying what happened? we want the truth. we want to know to make sure that this doesn't happen again. i mean remember, four americans chied, and i think general petraeus and all of the others who have been out there in the past, talking about benghazi, need to come
